    Notes 
    • Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wallace (1808 - aft 1860) was the second wife of Jeremiah Williams (1775 - ?) and according to Williams Family researchers they had a very large family consisting of the following children: Raleigh, Enoch Spinks, Lorenzo D., Amanda Jane, Franey, David Anderson, Caty, Ann, James Wesley, Joseph and Bryant. According to Williams family sources, Jeremiah and Besty left Moore County, NC and traveled to western TN where most of their family was raised. Jeremiah is said to have traveled back and forth several times. Their children and descendants can be found in Census data from Madison, McNairy and Henderson County, TN. Several of them moved on further to TX and OK.

      Jeremiah Williams' 1st wife is reported to be Florence DeLaney (1774/1780 - c1827). They had the following children: Jeremiah Jr., Elizabeth, John, Matthew, George and Isaac. It is possible that Jeremiah was born in VA as two of his children (Enoch Spinks and David Anderson) reported in the 1880 Census that their father was born in VA. The remaining surviving children listed that he born in NC. It is my belief that Jeremiah Williams was the son of George and Ann Williams. This is based upon three pieces of circumstantial evidence. (1) Everet Wallace, Jeremiah's future father-in-law is a witness to the will of George Williams in 1797, (2) Everet Wallace, Jeremiah Williams and George Williams all lived very near each other just south of the present day town of Robbins, and (3) there are two Jeremiah Williams in upper Moore County around this time, but one Jeremiah is consistently found in the area stated above and the other is found consistently in a different area located north of the present day town of Robbins.

    Histories
    Everet Wallace
    Everet Wallace
    Everet Wallace appeared for the very first time in the 1790 Census in Moore County, NC. Everet, appearing with his wife, Caty/Catherine and their infant daughter, Celia, were the only Wallaces recorded in the Moore County, NC Census that year. From his first appearance in the 1790 Census to his last in a Tax Record in 1844/1845, there are over 35 known references to Everet in Moore County, NC records. Among these records, Everet can be found entering land, paying taxes, serving on juries, testifying at trials, and purchasing goods at estate sales.

    Beyond Everet Wallace
    Beyond Everet Wallace
    Despite over twenty years of research and close examination, Everet Wallace [c1770-c1845] still remains our genealogical roadblock. There have been many theories, close calls, and pure guesses as to who Everet's father was and where the family originated prior to Everet living in Moore County, NC.

    My belief has always been that Everet was either born in Moore County, NC or moved there at a young age. My grandfather, Mallie Wallace, said his grandfather, Emsley Wallace, told him that Everet was the first Wallace "in the country". Now while we know he was nowhere near the first Wallace in the United States, "in the country" probably meant "around here/upper Moore County. " Two of Everet's children lived until the 1880 Census and both Isham and Franey listed their parents as having been born in NC so I feel pretty confident that Everet was born in NC.

    In this document, you will find some of the most prominent unconfirmed leads that I have been able to find. If you will notice that none of these speculations can be found in my actual family tree as I have no factual evidence regarding their relationship to Everet. These are purely speculative thoughts based on my personal research.

    Copies of the first few pages of Maxine Williams McNeill's book "The Williams Family". These pages detail the stories handed down through the generations regarding the Jeremiah Williams family. I can not attest to their accuracy but they are at the very least informative and instructive for others to follow behind with additional research. A great deal of gratitude to Maxine Williams McNeill and the fellow Williams family researchers who put this book together.
